One of Uganda’s smallest parks at a mere 33.7 km², she encompasses the slopes of the three northern most Virunga Volcanoes – Muhavura (4,127 m), Gahinga (3,474 m) and Sabyinyo (3,645 m) – thus protecting the Ugandan part of the Virungas, their huge volcanic cones dominate her entire landscape.

Besides the Nyakagezi, the one habituated gorilla family consisting of 2 silverbacks, 3 adult females, 2 juveniles and 2 infants, this little gem is also home to Black & White Colobus monkeys, Blue Monkeys, Leopard, Forest elephant, Giant forest hog, etc.

Activities in this park include Gorilla Tracking (the Nyakagezi group sometimes crosses the border into Rwanda thus not very reliable), a popular 6 hours round trip hike through a pure Bamboo forest as well as Bird walks in search of the park’s 79 bird species including several endemics to the East Congo Montane region.
